The following table shows expenditure on health promotion campaigns commissioned from other organisations by the Department over the last four completed financial years. These figures represent communications activities but are not split into the individual categories as per departmental expenditure, as these records are not held centrally by the Department and to identify them would be to incur disproportionate cost.

Heart Disease

Miss McIntosh: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what estimate he has made of the number of people aged (a) 18 years and over, (b) 60 years and over and (c) 85 years and over who were diagnosed with a heart condition in (i) England and (ii) Yorkshire and the Humber Strategic Health Authority in each year since 1997. [298142]

Ann Keen: This information is not collected routinely. Data are collected on the prevalence of heart disease through the Quality Outcomes Framework (QOF) for all ages (but it is not broken down into 18 years and older, 60 years and older and 85 years old and over).

The number of cases (and percentage prevalence) is reported as follows through QOF for England and Yorkshire and Humber Strategic Health Authority (SHA). The data are only available from 2004.
